You can add me and my wife, Kitty Baran, to the list of people that would like to join a Maynard Fan Club ASAP.
We now live in Carson City, NV but we used to live in So. Cal. At that time, I worked for Buena Vista Home Video the Disney Video arm in Burbank. One of the perks was a Silver Passport to the park. We first bumped into the Evil Twin when a friend of ours was visiting from Australia and he made her visit to the Mansion very memorable. We noticed that he was very visible on the morning news on KTLA during the Halloween day festivities, and we generally kept an eye out for him.
Disney has a family Christmases party each year, which at that time was a two-night affair. I would volunteer to work one of the nights (which none D-land employees could do) and then go with my wife the other night. One of the Christmases I worked the old jet rocket ride, and who should show up but Maynard. I picked him out right away and told him what a fan we were and how great he had made the visit of our Aussie friend. He seemed rather embarrassed by the attention.
Last August we made a special trip to LA to see the new Tomorrow Land. Whom should we bump into at the new rockets but Maynard? He was doing a great shtick about ‘The Monkey Planet’ and generally keeping the queue entertained. We said hello and had a quick conversation that included the information about your website. It has taken awhile but here I am at last. I’ve already sent the link to Australia!
I would love to see a story by Maynard of ‘The Monkey Planet’ saga.
Thanks for keeping this up,
Mike & Kitty
